Pick 5 of your favourite books and quote the first line. People have to guess which book you are quoting. I have to say picking 5 was hard.

1. A few miles south of Soledad, the Salinas River drops in close to the hill-side bank and runs deep and green.

2. They're out there.

3. Dear Franklin, I'm unsure why one trifling incident this afternoon has moved me to write to you.

4. I am doomed to remember a boy with a wrecked voice - not because of his voice, or because he was the smallest person I ever knew, or even because he was the instrument of my mother's death, but because he is the reason I believe in God;......

5. It is very seldom that mere ordinary people like John and myself secure ancestral halls for the summer.

Oh dear ... I don't even know one of them. Though Soledad and Salinas River sounds familiar somehow ...

The only one I think I recognize is 4: A Prayer for Owen Meany?

Is the first quote from a John Steinbeck novel; perhaps "Of Mice & Men"?
